Flynn ‘eager’ to proceed to sentencing, put criminal case behind him: attorney

WASHINGTON DC- July 10 Michael Flynn former National Security Advisor to President Donald Trump departs the E. Barrett Prettyman United States Courthouse following a pre-sentencing hearing

Earlier Tuesday Stonington, led by a former Republican campaign consultant and registered lobbyist Nick Muzin, announced that Flynn had signed on as director for global strategy.

But Flynn's attorneys, Robert Kelner and Stephen Anthony, later issued a statement saying: "General Flynn has not joined Stonington and did not personally issue any public statement". "He was aware that a statement".

Stonington Global is billed as a firm that "will help domestic and worldwide clients navigate global equity markets and facilitate interactions with governments", and has offices in Washington and New York City.

Facing potentially severe charges that included acting as an unregistered lobbyist, Flynn agreed on December 1, 2017 to plead guilty to a single count of lying to investigators in exchange for cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into possible links between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Asked about the statement from Flynn's attorneys, Muzin said he was unable to comment on the general's "considerations about the timing of the announcement" but still looked forward to "working together".

Under federal guidelines, Flynn's sentence is estimated to be between zero and six months in prison.

Former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn arrives for a status hearing related to his guilty plea on charges that he made false statements in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, at U.S. District Court in Washington, U.S., July 10, 2018.

Prior to his guilty plea late past year, Flynn had been forced out from his national security advisor post, after only 22 days, over concerns that he could be compromised by false statements he made over his contacts with Russian officials and his paid lobbying for Turkey during the campaign. "Its issuance now in his name appears to have been the result of a misunderstanding". If Cohen agrees to cooperate, whatever relevant information he could provide would likely be shared with Mueller's team.

Flynn admitted in December to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about contacts with then-Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, becoming one of the first Trump associates to cooperate - and the highest-ranking official charged - in special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Flynn resigned from his top White House post in February 2017 after the White House said that he misled Vice President Pence and other administration officials about his contacts with Kislyak. The general did not speak, but Kelner said his client is "eager" to move on with his life.

Flynn is one of several Trump campaign officials investigated by the Mueller probe. He pleaded guilty a year ago to lying to federal agents about his contacts with Russians. After Trump's victory in 2016, Flynn was named national security adviser but left the role shortly after Trump's inauguration amid controversy over his statements to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about conversations with Russia's ambassador. Paul Manafort, a former Trump election campaign chairman, faces charges that include conspiring to launder money and failing to register as a foreign agent in connection with his lobbying for the previously pro-Russia Ukrainian government, bank fraud and filing false tax returns.

Flynn was jeered by a small group of protesters as he arrived at and later left the courthouse in Washington, some chanting "lock him up!"
